The comic has been in the hands of collector Billy Gates (not affiliated with the billionaire) for over 40 years. Gates bought a rare copy in 1979 for three thousand dollars – at a time when collecting comics was still in its infancy, it was a lot of money. In 2019, after his death, Gates donated the collection to his son.

Another rare DC comic, Detective Comics # 27, where Batman first appears, was auctioned in November. It was bought for $ 1.5 million. The most “expensive” comic is still Action Comics # 1 – it sold for an incredible $ 3.2 million.
